Watching movies on a big screen is a great experience. It’s a no wonder movie theater in the industry rake in a lot of cash. But if you are anything like me, you’ll not always be up to making the long trip to the city for the experience. But here’s the good news, you can replicate the movie experience in the comfort of your home. All you need is a home theatre projector.
Projector technology has come a long way. A home theatre projector will support high-quality content. This is a good thing. But unfortunately, the high-quality content alone isn’t enough to give you the movie experience you love and crave for.
Luckily, there’s a way to make it all work for you. And here’s the thing, you won’t have to break the bank. If you are looking for a best budget projector under $200, the projector review we wrote, 2019 Top 8 Best Projectors Under $200 Review will give you some advice. A little tweaking of the setup and you’ll be good to go.
So now without further ado, let’s get into the best home theatre projector set up for a home cinema – you’ll be surprised at how quick and easy it all is.
In addition to this, you’ll need to factor in the distance of the projected screen from the floor. Generally, anything between 24 and 36 inches from your floor will be great. The projector manual may have some placement information.
In addition to this, you’ll also have to decide whether the projection will be from behind the screen or the front. But if you live in a residential area, behind the screen projection isn’t quite possible. As such, you have limited options.
I prefer ceiling mounting for a couple of reasons. First, once you set up, it’s for life. Not unless you decide to change things up later for whatever reason. Table placement setups are prone to changes since they place the projector on your path. Second, ceiling projectors are safer and less prone to accidents.
When you are doing the actual mounting on the ceiling, try setting the projector on a ladder first to get the sweet spot I mentioned before you drill it to the ceiling.
Once the best movie projector is set up, it’s time to get it to project the best picture. This step is super important so don’t skip it.
If the projector is on the ceiling you’ll need a ladder to adjust its height and angle. Today most projector mounts are adjustable so angle adjustment should be a breeze.
Play around with the lens and keystone correction (especially if the screen is projected on a slanted wall. This will align it).
Once the screen is in the right place and is properly aligned, its time to get the video in focus. These are minor adjustments and they are pretty simple. The adjustments are made via a ring around the lens.
Speaking of the ring, there are two: one to zoom in and out and another to focus. Work both of them to get the perfect video.
I know we all think high-quality video is everything. But it’s not. Actually, it’s one half of the experience. The other half is all about sound. Most projectors lack built-in speakers. And even for those that have speakers, the quality is nowhere comparable to a cinema.
Here is where a quality sound system comes in. connect the projector to the sound system and your set up is complete.
A home theatre projector setup is without a doubt an investment that will offer you exhilarating experiences for many years to come. When you get the setup right, your gaming, TV and movie watching experience will be unmatched. Just remember to invest in the best movie projector (it doesn’t have to be insanely expensive).
